Join us for a dementia-friendly experience of the Museum of London. Explore London’s past and present on a relaxed 30 minute gallery tour, chat and reminisce with our friendly guides and get creative in the sensory, interactive workshop which follows.

Workshops aim to inspire the imagination and may include arts-based creative crafts, museum object handling, singing and food tasting. Tour and workshop topics will change monthly and vary from childhood through time to shopping and fashion. See below for upcoming tour themes.

Our tours have been designed with and for people living with the early stages of dementia, accompanied by their companions. We aim to make them as bespoke as possible, and encourage participants to contact us at [email protected] to share their backgrounds with us.

Meet one of our guides and find out more by watching our Living London’s moments video.

Booking is advised, but we welcome drop-ins on the day.

This is part of the Museum of London's GLA funded Memories of London programme, which aims to improve the wellbeing of people living with dementia throughout London. Contact us for further information.
